Ok so i have 4 children ages 9-boy and 3 girls ages 6,2,and 1. I think i have lost all control in my house. The 9 and 6 yr olds do what they want when they want. No matter what i ask them to do they dont bother to listen. My 2 yr old is picking on the 1yr old all the time and she doesnt listen to me and really doesnt like time outs. She is climbing over the baby gate that i have to put in front of her bedroom door so that she stays in there for her time outs. I am totally lacking on sleep i am lucky if i get 3-4 hrs and that is not together and my husband is on the road all wk and is really no help at all when he is home. The only one that is listening and does has i ask or say is the 1 yr old but if i dont get the house under control with the other 3 i am doomed when she gets a mind of her own. Anyone that can elp me i am totally open to anything anyone can say for me.
